It only took me about two months of off and on working on this crib sized baby blanket. I did not use a pattern. Instead, I just used a basic basket weave stitch in basic acrylic yarn. The border is a very light blue in a half double crochet stitch. I hope it lasts for years to come :)
Went to a great yarn shop / bookstore on Hilton Head Island called the Courtyard and last night started on making another wall hanging. The shop website is http://thecourtyardhhi.com. so if you’re ever there I highly recommend you check it out!
